Toyota Rav4 Trail Edition - Tow Possibilities

We just brought home a new 2018 Toyota Rav4 Trail Ed. to be used as my wife's daily driver (replacing her Equinox). It does come with a 3500 lb tow capacity, which could be nice for taking short trips with the 15B, especially if there are no serious mountain passes on our routes. We didn't get the hitch and wiring harness from the dealership yet, as they wanted several pounds of flesh for that. Instead, I will likely go the aftermarket route for both hitch and wiring harness for about 1/5 the cost. In no rush for now, so I will likely plan on being setup for towing for next spring. Here is a picture of the new beast.

That must be the same as what they call the Adventure edition in the US. I'll be interested to see how you like it. I've looked and looked for real-life towing reports on the Adventure model but can't find anything helpful.

Yes, the American "Adventure" model is the equivalent to the Canadian "Trail" edition.
